Put it in your diary!

The need for cyber upskilling in the non-exec space is greater than ever, given the recent well-publicised attacks, including the MoD and the British Library.

Assured has built a close-knit network of ‘(Cyber)NEDs’. It’s a safe place to ask questions, discover incident triage techniques, and share war stories.

The next breakfast session in London is an interactive incident response workshop designed for NEDs to navigate a simulated cyber attack under the guidance of leading law, PR, and incident response specialists. You’ll leave equipped with the knowledge to hold your Board accountable and ensure compliance if and when your business is faced with a cyber attack.

For the record, you’re not expected to be a cyber expert.

Frankly, that’s our job.

Your role? Advise, lead, and provide independent oversight and judgment. Just as security is a governance function for IT, as NEDs you serve as a governance function for your business.

According to Gartner, 88% of Board members classify cybersecurity as a business risk. And as cybersecurity continues to dominate Boardroom discussions, the need for impartial and informed discussion, knowledge sharing and cyber understanding is crucial.

Enter Assured’s Cyber Council.

The Assured ‘Cyber Council’.

“Cyber threats are increasing in volume, sophistication, and diversity, so keeping up is always a challenge. If the collective awareness among NEDs on a Board is improved, this creates a better overall composition of specialists and generic skills, ultimately making the Board more able to adapt to a range of emerging issues.”

— Correy Voo, Chairman at MIRACL
